While a stalemate took the game into two overtime periods, Justin Donawa and his Dartmouth Men’s Soccer teammates was able to pull out a 2-1 win in their Ivy League opener game against Princeton.
Through the first half and early minutes in the second period of the game the score remained tied at 0-0, until Princeton’s leading scorer, Jeremy Colvin, broke the silence with a goal scored in the 53rd minute. Defender Sean McSherry sent a pass over to Colvin who beat a Big Green defender and sent his shot into the left side.
Not long after, in the 62nd minute, junior Donawa scored on a header off a deep pass from teammate Dawson McCartney, tying it up.
Neither team was able to find the back of the net again during regulation, although there were multiple attempts to. Dartmouth outshot Princeton 16 to 11 and had a total of 16 corner kicks which created multiple chances for scoring as well.
In the fourth minute of the second overtime, 113 minutes into play, Donawa set up for a free kick and sent the ball into the box Wyatt Omsberg got a piece of it, bouncing it to Matt Danilack, who headed it into the net, ending the game.
After a scoreless first half, Rhode Island found the back of the net twice within a 10-minute span early in the second half against George Washington.
